A U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier that was sidelined for nearly two months due to an outbreak of COVID-19 went out to sea Thursday to prepare for a return to duty in the Pacific.

The USS Theodore Roosevelt docked in Guam on March 27, after crew members tested positive for the virus.

The U.S. Navy said the ship would sail this week with a scaled-back crew of about 3,000 as around 1,800 sailors are still in quarantine on the island.

Those in isolation include up to 14 service members who recently tested positive again for the virus, just days after getting cleared to return to work.

The carrier plans to conduct a two-week training and then return to Guam to pick up healthy crew members.
